IT'S that time again... the new SPL season is about to start and you can put your Dons knowledge and predicting skills to the test!

Beat the Manager is Aberdeen-Mad's official prediction game - where you pit your wits against the Dons-Mad community... and the whole FootyMad network!

The scoring method is as follows:

You are awarded points depending on the accuracy of your score. If you predict the score correctly you are awarded a 'win', and will receive 16 points. Guessing the correct result gives you a 'draw' worth 5 points. Predict the wrong result, however, and you get no points (a 'loss'). There is a chance to win bonus points: if you correctly guess either team's number of goals it's 2 points, and you are rewarded with 5 if you correctly predict a game will end in a draw.

Here is a table showing exactly what each prediction could give you:

For example, if Aberdeen and B.T.M. Town draw 2-2

1-1 - - - - - 0pts

However, be warned that persistent repeated identical scorelines will see points deducted from your overall score. For each consecutive identical scoreline entered in excess of three, you will be deducted three points from your total, i.e. entering five 1-1 scorelines in a row will see six points taken from your score, regardless of their point scoring success or failure.
